Strategic Partnership Plus, 2 editions (2014 & 2015)

The training activity took place
in Sinaia, Romania (for both editions)
organised by National Agency for Community Programs in the Field of Education and Vocational Training (Erasmus+ NA in Romania)
9-13 December 2014/ 3-7 November 2015

Aims & objectives

The two editions aimed:
• To create a space for developing partnerships able to submit good quality applications and implement effectively cross-sectoral Strategic Partnerships
• To provide the necessary information and skills to understand and implement such partnerships
• To provide a space for sharing knowledge and experiences between organizations involved in all types of learning activities.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

Each of the two editions put together 60 participants from an average of 15 countries from all over Europe.

Training methods used & main activities

The events placed the participants in the centre of the learning process through interactive methods while focusing on the understanding of the concepts and specifics of working in international projects. A mix of workshops, facilitated discussions and other active tools were used to build up such project ideas while the work results were presented in the plenary sessions as o source of inspirations.

Outcomes of the activity

14 projects ideas were developed during the two editions. The participants appreciated in the evaluations forms the design of the activity that allowed them to create relevant groups with organizations representatives that had complementary contributions and the working atmosphere that was appreciated both effective and smooth in the same time.
Working sessions were appreciated as efficient following a pattern in which the theoretical background introduction was followed by practical implementation through working effectively with the concepts and applications forms.

Several applications forms were submitted as a result of the two events.
